In addition to the Batterson book, I'm currently reading Sheila Walsh's Loved Back to Life: How I found the courage to live free, a 'celebrity' memoir which focuses on this same subject (depression). Sheila validates depression as a mental illness which can require pharmaceutical treatment. So often people in the church try to ascribe depression to a spiritual attack or lack of faith, delegitimatizing the very real medical aspect. This silences those who need help and to be heard. Can we please stop?
What are you reading right now? Anyone doing any kind of reading challenge?
